Post VMA Analysis: Amber Rose "Barely There" Chain Dress

Amber Rose a.k.a Mrs Wiz Khalifa must be clapping her hands and
jumping for joy after getting back in the news.

30 year old Amber gave a red carpet shock treatment by wearing a chain
dress to tame her wild body ( that must definitely be the reason)
during the MTV VMAs last Sunday.

Wiz doesn't even look like he's there.

Now she's got everyone talking again. Yay!

Oh, all these attention seekers have really perfected their art. SMH

Post VMA Analysis: Body language Expert Says Beyonce and Jay Z's Family Embrace Not Convincing

'Rumors have been swirling for weeks that the power couple's
relationship has been on the rocks, but at Sunday's MTV Video Music
Awards, they tried to at least present a united front.

As Beyoncé finished her 15-minute set, hubby Jay Z — carrying daughter
Blue Ivy — presented her with the Video Vanguard Award onstage. Queen
Bey said a few words to the crowd, she embraced her family, and then
they headed home. (Hopefully without having to travel in any
elevators.)

To many viewers, the family's appearance felt like something cooked up
in a p.r. boardroom in an attempt to counter the reports of their
imminent split.

Beyoncé seemed to shed tears, but were they tears of joy for her award
or of sadness over the unraveling of her six-year marriage?

"I see a lot of hurt and pain here," says Florida-based body language
expert Susan Constantine. "They're just trying to save face. They feel
no emotions toward each other," adds Constantine, who examined a video
of the appearance as well as a still photo.

The body language expert, who also works as a jury consultant, says
that pictures can sometimes be more telling than videos. Discovering
how someone truly feels is about analyzing their "microexpressions" —
brief, sometimes involuntary movements of the face that betray
emotions.

"Jay Z and Beyoncé are completely distant, and their minds are on
something else," she says. "Beyoncé feels really uncomfortable."

Even 2-year-old Blue Ivy might be trying to tell us something.

"I see this sense of sadness. It's almost like Beyoncé is looking at
her going, 'It's OK,' " Constantine says. "And the baby is saying,
'This doesn't seem right.' Children are very perceptive."

Of course, that uneasiness on the baby's part might just be about
appearing on a stage in front of thousands of screaming fans.

But peep the photo in question and see what the expert had to say about it all:

Beyoncé's face
"She's giving a false smile," Constantine says. If she were really
happy, her eyebrows would be lifted and her eyes would be more open.

Jay Z's face
"This is what we call a flat face," Constantine says. "There's no
expression whatsoever." Happiness would be indicated by upturned
corners of the mouth. But he's less strained than Beyoncé.

Eyes
"Neither one of them is looking at each other," says body language
expert Susan Constantine. "Their interest is more in their daughter."

Beyoncé's hand over midsection
She's blocking her stomach area — the home of emotions in the body —
indicating a feeling of vulnerability. Were she feeling comfortable,
she'd expose her midsection.

Beyoncé's hip
Her hips are angled away from her husband, indicating disassociation.
"In other [older] photos, you see Beyoncé leaning into her husband,"
Constantine says.

Blue Ivy
Her hands are clasped in a prayer-like way. Happiness would be
indicated by raised arms and an extended body. Instead, she's making
herself small. "Maybe she's praying her parents get back together,"
Constantine says.'

But seriously, I don't think there has ever been anything REAL about
these people.

Cameroonian player dies in Algeria after being hit by object from crowd

Cameroonian footballer Albert Ebosse has died after being hit by an
object thrown by fans at a game in Algeria.

Ebosse, who was 24, was declared dead after being taken to hospital in
Tizi Ouzou, east of the capital Algiers.

The JS Kabylie striker was hit when spectators started throwing
objects from the stands as the teams left the pitch at full-time.

Ebosse was the leading scorer in the Algerian league in the 2013-14
season, with 17 goals.
It has not been confirmed what hit him, but one Algerian newspaper
reported that home fans, angry at their team's defeat, were throwing
rocks.

A statement from Ebosse's club said he had "succumbed to a head
injury" after being struck at the end of the match.

A special meeting of the Algerian league (LFP) has been convened for
Monday morning and the stadium has been closed until further notice.

Chris Brown Responds To Suge Knight Being Shot at His Pre-MVA Party

Death Row Records founder and rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was
injured in an early morning shooting Sunday in a packed nightclub but
was expected to survive, a Los Angeles County sheriff's sergeant said.

Knight was one of three club patrons struck by gunfire around 1:30
a.m. at 1OAK on West Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard, said Sgt. C. Tatar,
watch commander at the Los Angeles County sheriff's West Hollywood
station.

Two other victims, a man and a woman, were also being treated at local
hospitals and were expected to survive.

Authorities are still seeking a suspect and declined to release
additional information, citing the ongoing investigation.

The shooting came just hours before MTV's Video Music Awards, which
are slated for Sunday evening in Inglewood. R&B singer Chris Brown,
who was co-hosting a party at the nightclub with Pia Mia, was also
inside the club but not hit by the gunfire, Tatar said.

MTV said it had no affiliation or connection to the event.

While he didn't mention the shooting directly, Brown seemed to refer
to it on Twitter.

"It's disappointing that we as a society can't have fun or enjoy
ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the
bulls---!!!," Brown tweeted.

Knight has been shot before. In 2005, he was struck in the leg during
an MTV awards pre-party in Miami Beach.

British Rapper Suspected to be Masked Man That Be-headed American Journalist, James Foley

A British rapper, L jinny, has been fingered as the prime suspect in
the be-heading of US Journalist, James Foley.

Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary — who recently tweeted a photo of himself
holding up a severed head — was among three Brits identified as
possibly being the masked killer known as "John the Beatle."

Bary, 24, is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting
trial on terror charges tied to the deadly 1998 bombings of embassies
in Kenya and Tanzania.

Also under investigation are the brother of a British doctor once
charged with kidnapping two Western war correspondents, and a former
gang member who converted to Islam and traveled to Syria,
Britain'sTelegraph newspaper reported.

Reportedly, Bary is from West London and used to go by the name L
Jinny, and even got play on BBC Radio 1. However, last year he left
London and moved to Syria after becoming "radicalized" by the
teachings of Anjem Choudary.

Bary is one of the three British expats turned jihadists referred to
as "The Beatles" due to their British accents.

Foley was kidnapped in Syria on Thanksgiving 2012 while working for
the GlobalPost agency.

He was taken hostage at gunpoint by militants from the group Jabhat al
Nusra while reporting from Taftanaz, northern Syria.

Disturbing footage of his execution appeared on YouTube last week in a
video titled 'A message to the US', in which an apparently coerced
Foley, 40, recites a pre-prepared script presumably given to him by
his captors which he delivers unflinchingly to the camera.

Foley also leaves a haunting message for his brother, John, who he is
heard to say is either a past or serving member of the US Air Force.

Referring to airstrikes launched nearly two weeks ago in Iraq, Foley
says: 'I died that day, John, when your colleagues dropped that bomb
on these people. They signed my death certificate'.

not break her legs. There was no immediate word if she was injured.

Eye Witness Produces Video of US Policeman Who Shot Black Teen

A woman who claims she saw a police officer shoot dead Michael Brown
has released a video of his lifeless body in the street as the cop who
killed him paces back and forth.

Piaget Crenshaw lives in an apartment with a balcony overlooking the
street in Ferguson, Missouri where the 18-year-old was killed on
August 9.

She said today that she waited until now to release the video as she
feared for her safety and the officer's name had not been released.

'I knew the police shouldn't have been chasing this boy and firing at
the same time. And the fact he got shot in his face, something clicked
in me and I thought someone else should see this so I recorded.'

Ms Crenshaw said that police had her footage after confiscating her
phone following the shooting.

She questioned why they did not release this at the same time as the
video of Michael Brown allegedly stealing cigars from a convenience
store on Friday.

Ms Crenshaw said Officer Wilson paced back and forth along the street
next to Michael Brown's body as if he was 'in disbelief' by what had
just happened.

The woman was unclear what exactly happened between Brown and Wilson
at the police cruiser but said that it appeared as if the officer was
trying to pull the teenager into the car.

She said Brown got away and she heard shots fired, none of which
appeared to hit Brown although she believed one grazed him.

It was then Brown 'turned around and was shot multiple times'.

She added: 'He was running away and when he [Brown] turned around he was shot.'

Officer Wilson is now on paid administrative leave following the
shooting death of Michael Brown, pending the outcome of the
investigation into the shooting.

On Monday the St Louis County medical examiner also confirmed that
Brown had been shot between six and eight times.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson released the name of Officer
Wilson last Friday after mounting public pressure. He had waited after
saying that the officer received death threats on social media.

The shooting of the unarmed black teenager has sparked eight days of
protests in the once quiet Missouri suburb.

Jackie Chan's Son Detained On Drug-related Charges

Hong Kong action superstar Jackie Chan's actor-son Jaycee Chan has
been detained in Beijing on drug-related charges, the latest
high-profile celebrity to be ensnared in one of China's biggest
anti-drug crackdowns in two decades.

Jaycee Chan, 31, was detained last Thursday together with the
23-year-old Taiwanese movie star Kai Ko, Beijing police said late
Monday on their official microblog, identifying them only by their
surnames, ages and nationalities. It was unclear why the detentions
were announced several days later.


Police said both actors tested positive for marijuana and admitted
using the drug, and that 100 grams of it were taken from Chan's home.

Jaycee Chan's management, M'Stones International, apologized to the
public on his behalf for the "social impact" caused in a statement on
their website. It said they would "supervise his rehabilitation and
help him return to the right path."

The detentions follow a declaration in June by President Xi Jinping
that illegal drugs should be wiped out and that offenders would be
severely punished. In Beijing alone, more than 7,800 people have been
caught in the crackdown, police said.

A string of celebrities have been among those detained, including Gao
Hu, who acted in Zhang Yimou's 2011 movie "The Flowers of War." Last
week, 42 Beijing performing arts associations and theater companies
signed a pledge to not hire any actors connected with drugs in an
event organized by the capital's Narcotics Control Office and the
Beijing Cultural Bureau.

Chinese state broadcaster CCTV aired footage of a police search of the
younger Chan's home in Beijing in which he is depicted, his face
pixelated, showing officers where he stashed bags of marijuana. Police
said they acted on a tipoff from the public.

Chan is accused of accommodating drug users, an offense that carries a
maximum sentence of three years' imprisonment — a far more serious
charge than that of drug consumption. Two other people detained in the
same case were accused of selling drugs while Ko is accused of drug
consumption.

China named the elder Chan an anti-drug ambassador in 2009. Ko, the
Taiwanese star, was part of an anti-drug campaign two years ago, CCTV
reported, showing footage of the campaign in which he joins other
celebrities in a chorus declaring: "I don't use drugs."

On Tuesday, Ko was shown on CCTV, his face pixelated, tearfully
apologizing to his fans and family.

"I feel very regretful, very sorry to all the people who support me...
I've been a very bad example, I've made a very big mistake," Ko said.
In a statement online, his management company, Star Ritz Productions,
said Ko had received a 14-day detention and also apologized to the
public.

Ko, whose real name is Ko Chen-tung, became a sensation after his 2011
film "You Are the Apple of My Eye," a box-office hit in Taiwan. He won
Best New Performer award for his role in the coming-of-age movie at
the Golden Horse awards in Taiwan, considered the most prestigious in
Chinese-language cinema.

He played the boyfriend of one of the protagonists in China-produced
"Tiny Times 3.0," which appealed to young female audiences and knocked
"Transformers 4" off the No. 1 spot as the most watched film after its
release in the mainland last month.

Illegal drug use has ballooned in China in recent decades, after being
virtually eradicated following the 1949 communist revolution.
Narcotics began to reappear with the loosening of social controls in
the late 1980s.

In more recent years, rising wealth and greater personal freedoms have
been accompanied by a growing popularity of methamphetamines and the
party drugs Ecstasy and ketamine. They are often bought on social
media forums and consumed in nightclubs, leading to periodic police
crackdowns.
